Yesterday, while driving north on Coulter Dr about 11:45, I saw a flock of at least 250 ibis flying east-west over Lake Ginninderra.  They were too high for me to identify species.

There were well in excess of 300 Australian White Ibis and 35+ Straw-necked Ibis roosting on the 2 southern islands of Lake Tuggeranong, which flew in from the east. Also roosting there were 4 Great Cormorants and 3 female Darters. Every afternoon, we see many large flocks of ibis fly over Fadden and MacArthur due west, and the opposite direction in the mornings. Direction-wise, these flocks are clearly the ones that end up at Lake Tuggers. Now I am really curious to where these ibises spend the day... Maybe over the border?
